Data from: The effects of food supply on reproductive hormones and timing of reproduction in an income-breeding seabird

Shannon Whelan, Scott A. Hatch, Z. Morgan Benowitz-Fredericks, Charline Parenteau, Olivier Chastel & Kyle Elliott
Current food supply is a major driver of timing of breeding in income-breeding animals, likely because increased net energy balance directly increases reproductive hormones and advances breeding. In capital breeders, increased net energy balance increases energy reserves, which eventually leads to improved reproductive readiness and earlier breeding. To test the hypothesis that phenology of income-breeding birds is independent of energy reserves, we conducted an experiment on food-supplemented (“fed”) and control female black-legged kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla)....

A basic ddRADseq two-enzyme protocol performs well in herbarium and silica-dried tissues across four genera

Premise of the study: The ability to sequence genome-scale data from herbarium specimens would allow for the economical development of broad datasets with taxonomic and geographic sampling not otherwise possible. Here we evaluate the utility of a basic restriction site-associated DNA (ddRADseq) protocol with DNAs from four genera extracted from both silica-dried and herbarium tissue. Methods: DNAs from Draba, Boechera, Solidago, and Ilex were processed with a double-digest restriction-site associated DNA sequencing (ddRADseq) protocol. The...
